Moonalice poster by Darrin Brenner
According to Moonalice legend, tonight’s poster by Darrin Brenner recalls a day when the Furthur bus came by. Surprisingly, Cowboy Neil was not at the wheel – some suggest that perhaps he had overindulged – so Alice took over. Being only ten, Alice did not know how to drive, so the old International Harvester drove itself while Alice leaned out the windshield throwing flowers and mushrooms to passers by. Meanwhile, the March Hare was playing moon golf with a guitar while he waited for the bus, which was – surprise, surprise – a bit on the late side. The Hare was desperate to get to a gig; tension was mounting. The Hare was out of pills to make him small, so going down the rabbit hole wasn’t an option. His only option was a tie dyed school bus driven by a child. Let that be a lesson to us . . .

“Faced with the challenge of visually capturing and combining the whimsy and mystique of Moonalice, with the psychedelic vibes referencing the Dead.
Starting with the classic White Rabbit, I felt in this case he should be musically inclined…as well as lunar-ly located. I kept him chronologically challenged, though the cause could be the strange lunar fungi following him. After that, well…the bus came by and he got on of course. Imagine his surprise when it was Cowboy Alice at the wheel, and the bus lead down the rabbit hole to mystical, magical Long Beach.” – Darrin Brenner, artist
